Hot Latke Table on Campus Monday, 11am-2pm (or as long as we can hold out in the cold!) Get Dreidels and Gelt, Menorahs and Candles, too!
Midnight Breakfast will be on Monday Night (Dec 11th) the night before Reading Day. 10pm-Midnight at Shabbos House.
Shabbat Dinners December 2017: at Shabbos House (Dec 1st and 15th), Hillel’s last dinner of the Semester (Dec 8th). Plus Hillel’s Semi-Formal will be December 2nd at the Interfaith Center (for perhaps the last time?).
Final-ly Chanukah! This year all of Chanukah falls during Finals Week, so we’re going with a “final-ly” theme and lighter (Chanukah pun-intended?) events. Nice party on the first night, and then open-door for Menorah and nibbles, plus some Chanukah treats for finals coming around. Click link for events, schedules etc.
Nosh4Finals, new for this year! Are you interested in a goodie-package for pickup outside your dorm on the first night of Finals, or second night of Chanukah? Fill out the form, choose your options and we’ll have it ready for you…
New Initiatives: We’ve begun our new social-action project “Excess-Access, Share the Wealth” which brings Shabbos House-made food to locals and seniors who’d appreciate it, stay tuned for ways to get involved with that program on Sundays (funded by a grant from the local Bnai Brith Gideon Foundation). Our new for this Fall “Conversations at Kosher” each Monday Lunch at Indian Kosher Dining is now ongoing as is “Women’s Wisdom” during Mincha after lunch on Shabbos afternoons.
Looking forward to Spring 2018 semester, save these important dates:
2/16-17: Alternate Parents Weekend at Shabbos House
2/23: Shabbat 360!
2/28-3/1: Purim UAlbany!
3/30-4/7: Passover Seders & Holiday Meals
5/18-21: Extended Graduation Wknd with Shavuot Holiday
Best wishes to all on an excellent close to the Fall semester, and a very Happy Chanukah!
